One of the main ways that I save money is buying used items. What do I buy used? Just about everything! That's right! Furniture, clothes, shoes, household items, cars, books, etc.
In this post, I am going to focus on my latest finds - shoes. I spent about $55 dollars on a pair of new shoes from a very nice shoe store just a couple of years ago. At the end of last winter, they really needed replaced. They were looking quite rugged and didn't stand up to my nice outfits.
...so... I hit the used stores! Salvation Army is my main store but I often find great shoes at the GoodWill Store also. To be honest, GoodWill is a bit more pricey so I tend to look there last.
All of my finds are VERY comfortable (even the stiletto). I am at that point in my life... sigh.
Here are my finds for this winter:
This is the "needed" shoe. I can wear it when I need to be on
my feet for a long time and can wear it with socks.
Boots: $3.29 (sorry, pic won't turn)
Shoe for my husband - leather
(He is into the stylish long toe!)
Totally NOT needed shoe - leather
Not needed shoe - good for church
This is the shoe that I have waited 2 summers for! I liked this style
and refused to pay $55 dollars so I waited... and waited.
FINALLY, they found their way to the used store.
No, I'm not a shoe freak but I could be if I wanted to! I don't pay much for my shoes. God has blessed me with good "finds".
